About me

Work history

Currently

Deputy Editor

Tram22 Music

Jul 2015
  • Deputy Editor of Tram 22, an online music channel operating across multiple integrated platforms, which is listed on Hype Machine alongside the world's most influential music blogs. I write reviews and features about new music and related events, and assist the Editor in making sure the site remains up to date and well written.

Currently

Editor

All About Group

Jul 2015
  • I am currently the Editor of AllAboutCareers.com and AllAboutLaw.com, two websites dedicated to bring careers-based news, advice and features to the Graduate, Undergraduate and School Leaver communities, with a focus on providing quality content in order to inform students of the choices available to them. The two websites attract over 200,000 independent users a month between them, and I write, commission or edit all content for both websites. Current affairs feature heavily in the news content of the site, and researching and producing exciting, relevant material is a key part of the role. In addition, AllAboutLaw produces a regular 20-page commercial insight newspaper, The Principle, of which I am an Editor and Features Writer. I am also responsible for adapting existing content for SEO optimisation and website traffic growth, and for producing shareable features to drive up unique website views and lower site bounce rate.

2014

Music Editor

Palatinate Newspaper

Jul 2013 - Jun 2014
  • Music Editor for Palatinate, Durham University's Official Student Newspaper. For the preceding year, I held the post of Deputy Music Editor.

2012

Writer & Editor

Neighbournet Ltd

Jun 2009 - Aug 2012
  • For four summers I worked at NeighbourNet, who run a chain of local news websites, including ChiswickW4.com, the largest hyper-local site in the world. Over the course of my time here I was promoted from being simply a contributor, to being given full editorial control of the sites when their respective editors were absent. I was also given full control of the social media aspects of certain websites, creating profiles in order to bring news faster to locals on another forum. Not only did I gain an insight into the world of journalism, but I gained transferable skills in terms of technology, responsibility and teamwork. To add to this, I was also involved in the advertising parts of the business in latter years, helping to promote the site to local businesses and increasing our sponsorship, and in doing so building up a network of useful contacts and procuring collaborative schemes which were mutually beneficial.
